Nancy Pelosi was holding her regular Thursday presser when she got very angry after a reporter asked the Speaker about Tara Reade’s allegations against Joe Biden. The reporter wanted to know why Pelosi isn’t treating Biden like Brett Kavanaugh. “I don’t need a lecture!” Pelosi declared. It only got worse for the California Democrat who totally beclowned herself on live TV. You’ll love this.
Nancy Pelosi scolded a reporter for doing her job. The reporter had the audacity to ask the Democrat Leader about the sexual assault allegations against Joe Biden, posing the question of why aren’t the Democrats holding to the same standards as they did with Brett Kavanaugh.
“Pelosi took several questions to wrap up her weekly press conference but appeared to lose patience when a reporter suggested that Democrats might be holding Biden to a different standard than Kavanaugh,” Daily Caller reports.
“As far as Biden is concerned, how do Democrats square with the idea that they are essentially standing by Biden but using a comparatively different standard with Kavanaugh,” the reporter asked. “They demanded an investigation on Mr. Kavanaugh when a very similar allegation came out toward him.”
Pelosi looked perturbed and lashed out at the reporter: “I don’t need a lecture!”
“I have complete respect for the whole #MeToo movement. I have four daughters and one son, and there is a lot of excitement around the idea that women will be heard and be listened to,” Pelosi continued. “There is also due process, and the fact that Joe Biden is Joe Biden.”
What does that mean? How can we have “due process” when Pelosi is failing to address the allegations at all, let alone call for an investigation. She looked like an utter fool.
“There has been statements from his campaign,” Pelosi added, confused. “Not his campaign but his former employees who ran his offices and the rest, that there was never any record of this. There was never any record. Nobody ever came forward to say something about it apart from the principal involved.”
Joe Biden is refusing to unseal the records which are held at the University of Delaware.
Pelosi went on to say how proud she was to have endorsed Biden, citing his work on the Violence Against Women Act and calling him “the personification of hope and optimism.”
“I have a great comfort level with the situation as I see it, with all the respect in the world for any woman who comes forward, with all the highest regard for Joe Biden. That is what I have to say about that,” Pelosi concluded, as she immediately left the podium afraid of follow-up questions.
Pelosi also bombed on CNN on Thursday claiming she’s satisfied with Biden’s silence on Tara Reade.
“Well, I have great sympathy for any women who bring forth an allegation. I’m a big strong supporter of the Me Too Movement. I think it’s been a great contribution to our country,” Pelosi said. “I do support Joe Biden. I’m satisfied with how he responded. I know him, I was proud to endorse him on Monday… So I’m satisfied with that.”
CNN’s Alisyn Camerota reminded Pelosi that Biden hasn’t even addressed the accusations other than denying them through his campaign.
“To be clear, he hasn’t addressed it,” Camerota said.
“It’s a matter that he has to deal with, but I am impressed by the people who worked for him at the time who said they never heard one iota of information about this,” Pelosi said. “But we have an important election at hand.”
Oh, so electing a potential sexual predator is more important than getting justice for his alleged victim.
We all see how Nancy Pelosi rolls.
Pretty incredible: Pelosi says she is "satisfied" with how Biden has responded to Reade's allegations.

Meanwhile, in 2018, Pelosi characterized the Supreme Court confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh as “a profoundly heartbreaking day for women, girls, and families” after Kavanaugh was charged with a 30-year-old rape allegation from Christine Blasey Ford, who could never even offer proof that the two had ever met, let alone provide a single witness to corroborate her claims.
“Courageous women risked their safety and well-being to speak truth about this nomination,” Pelosi said on the day of Kavanaugh’s winning vote in the Senate.
“Tens of thousands more joined them to share their own harrowing stories of sexual assault, at great personal risk,” Pelosi added at the time. “Yet, Senate Republicans chose to send a clear message to all women: do not speak out, and if you do – do not expect to be heard, believed or respected.”
The media still hasn’t even pressed Biden directly once on the issue after five weeks, 19 interviews, and 142 questions since Reade came forward last month, according to an analysis by the Washington Free Beacon.
Federalist Senior Editor Mollie Hemingway also points out that it took CNN, which published more than 700 articles on Ford, nearly an entire month to pass until it gave Reade a single mention.
They can ignore the allegations all they want. The American people are becoming very aware of this hypocrisy proving the #MeToo movement was all fluff and no real substance.
Nancy Pelosi and her Democrat cohorts are now proven to be just a bunch of jackals who circle the prey based on political affiliation. Facts, evidence, and the truth have no place or meaning in their lives.
